Election Year at Minnechaug 

The election of '92 was a big event for M.R.H.S. 
The entire school participated in a mock election 
on Oct. 20th with Clinton coming out on top. 
Eighteen year old seniors had the chance to vote 
for real, and the hard part was deciding who to 
vote for. Many students wanted change so Bill 
Clinton and Ross Perot were for them.

"Valerie Barsom was quite 
interesting to listen to. She 
wasn't what I expected after 
hearing so much about her." 





H 


"Before I voted, everyone I 
know was telling me how to 
vote. When I got there, no 
one working the polls could 
believe that I was 18 or 
knew anything about vot- 
ing." 




Gretchen Moody 







Michelle Ledoux 


"Voting for me wouldn't be 
an easy thing, especially 
this election. I was disap- 
pointed that Paul Tsongas 
hadn't stayed in the race 
because he seemed like the 
best candidate to me." 





Matt Emerle 


"I voted for Bill Clinton be- 
cause at the time I thought 
he was the best choice for 
president."

A Place Called "Fiddlestix" 



In our never-ending search for an interesting story, 
the FALCON Yearbook Staff really came up with a 
good one this time! Not really that long ago, and truly 
not very far away, several of this year's seniors start- 
ed their educations at a Wilbraham nursery school 
called "Fiddlestix". Luckily for us a fine photographic 
record exists of these "early days". And to bring this 
thing full cycle we brought two of these "cherub- 
tumed-chaugers" back to the scene of their early 
triumphs. 




(Above) Lettermen Matt Zaft- 
Weismann and Chris Taran- 
tino out front of Fiddlestix 
scouting a fine group of fu- 
ture Minnechaug sports 
stars. 



This photo caught Matt dis- 
playing early signs of the 
quest for knowledge that he 
would later display so 
proudly at Minnechaug.

effort was put in by all students to 
create something new, and it

Win National 
Recognition! 

Anthony Ceechi was the guest of honor 
at a reception held at Minnechaug in 
September that was attended by several 
"notables" (see photos). He and class- 
mate Ethan Pemberton had their works 
of art selected for display at the John F. 
Kennedy Library in Boston. Anthony will 
also be honored by being one of four 
student artists in the state to have their 
work on display in the White House, 
Smithsonian Institution, and the Very 
Special Arts Gallery in Washington D.C. 
Both works of art are political in nature 
with Anthony's titled "Stars and Stripes 
Forever", and Ethan's work titled 
"Glasnost".

"Sweet Sixteen" 

It happened to Princess Diane. It happened 
to Madonna. Even to Sinead O'Connor and 
Roseanne.... They all turned sixteen. They 
probably even had birthday parties. And 
many members of the Sophomore class will 
join that illustrious group this year. As shown 
here, Michelle Poulin's friends got together 
and lit those sixteen candles. 




Michelle Poulin & Light all sixteen! "The first cut is al- 

Friends. ways the hardest!"

SOLID Leadership 

A high school yearbook is a living history of an important 
time of your life. During your high school years you have 
j gathered a collection of memories to last a lifetime. As time 
! passes, you may lose daily contact with your friends from 
high school; but, occasionally, you will dust off your year- 
book, and a smile will cross your face as you recall a 
particular class, teacher, game, activity. . . 

The theme of the 1 993 yearbook is ' 'Bock Solid. " This is an 
appropriate phrase to describe our school. Your accom- 
plishments in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and in the 
community have helped to create a positive spirit. It is that 
spirit that has helped Minnechaug develop a sense of pride. 
With a cornmitment to education by students, parents, teach- 
ers, adminisrators, counselors, and everyone else asso- 
ciated with M.R.H.S., we will continue to direct our energies 
toward being "flock Solid. " 

Congratulations to the members of the Class of 1993. I 
wish you well as you enter a new phase of your life. You 
have proven your ability to accept responsibility, and I am 
confident that you will seek solutions to make our society a 
better place. 

Robert A. Johnson, Principal

Mr. Ned Doyle 



Athletic Director 

From those long summer days of double sessions until the 
springtime wins were all completed, Minnechaug High 
school athletes were ROCK SOLID. Their training and 
preparation, both physical and mental, allowed them to 
:ompete and win at the interscholastic level. They were 
ocused, they were intense, they wanted to experience the 
'Thrill of Victory" — They were ROCK SOLID!! 

Their significant contributions greatly added to the qual- 
ty of life at Minnechaug and in the community. They can 
De justly proud of their athletic prowess, for it played an 
ntegral part in their overall development — academic, 
>ocial, moral-ethical, and athletic. They were truly student- 
ithletes. 

However, the most significant outcome of their athletic 
;xperience is the fact that these athletes are now well 
jquipped to compete and win at the game of life. Why 
should anyone be surprised — they were FALCONS, and 
hey were and always will be ROCK SOLID.

That Produced Great Teams!

A Solid Season 



It had been eight long 
years since Minnechaug 
last became the AA confer- 
ence champions, but this 
year the football team 
pulled itself together and 
stormed to a Superbowl 
Birth. Lead by Tri-Captains 
Bill Brady, Mike Poremba, 
and Jon Albano the Falcons 
proved to be dominant on 
both sides of the ball. Brady 
showed his versatility at 
quarterback by both run- 
ning and throwing the ball, 
Poremba, Derek Giordano, 
and Jeff Murphy combined 



to be one of the best back- 
fields in Western Mass, 
while ends Chris Tatantino 
and Mike DeFlorio both 
blocked and caught the ball 
well. 

After an awful start, the 
team picked up its intensity 
and went on to beat Hol- 
yoke, Cathedral, and Cen- 
tral. At the end of the season 
Minnechaug was in a five 
way tie for first place, but 
was given a Superbowl 
birth because of its super- 
lative record within the con- 
ference.

this summer by cheering at 
a charity softball game for 
the Make-A-Wish Founda-

ABC soap stars who played 
against the local news team 
at Channel 40. We then 
moved on to the UCA Sum-

lege. With a solid perfor- 
mance we proved that we 
were worthy of our title. 



"1992 Division II State 
Champions", by winning 
the camp championships. 
Camp helped us come to-

us a solid foundation for our 
start to the year. Football

success.When the football 
team went to the superbowl, 
we cheered them on along

Boy's Soccer 

Rock On Guys! 



The Boy's Varsity Soccer 
team, with their new coach 
P.J. Cambo had a much im- 
proved season this year. 
With a record of 8-6-2 the 
Varsity lead by Co- 
Captains Josh Clarkin and 
Dave Labadorf just missed 
the W.Mass tournament by 
one point. Goalkeeper Ray 
Royer, with some help from 
a strong defense, did an ex- 
cellent job giving up goals 
very sparingly. Although 



the Freshmen ended the 
year with a record of 3-8-1, 
and the JV team had an "up 
and down" season lead by 
long-time head coach Wil- 
liam Jenkins, we hope some 
of our young talent will step 
into the spaces left by grad- 
uating Seniors. Both the JV 
and the Freshmen Soccer 
teams had good building 
years, and we see many 
highly skilled players com- 
ing up in the ranks.

Girl's Soccer 



Solid 500 Season 



The 1992 Girl's Varsity 
Soccer Team finished this 
season with an 8-8-2 record. 
This was the first year since 
1985 that the girls have fin- 
ished with a record of 500 or 
better, and Lani Hsiao 
matched a school record of 
15 goals in one season set 
by Pam Melcher in 1979. 
(Lani also set the school rec- 
ord for most points in a high 
school year. 32 goals + 16 



assists = 48 points.) JV had a 
very good season with only 
two loses. Both JV and 
Freshmen are training 
many good players who will 
soon be ready to replace the 
graduating seniors on Var- 
sity. This year's Division 1 
was filled with tough com- 
petent teams and Min- 
nechaug gave every team a 
"run for their money!"

Field Hockey 

Rocky Start, Solid Finish 



The chicks with sticks had 
yet another enthusiastic 
season this year with the 
help of Coach Flagg and 
newcomer J.V. Coach 
Rosenthal. With seniors An- 
gela Brunelle, Amy Smith, 
and Carrie Hapgood play- 
ing the front line and the in- 
famous "Dummy D" keeping 
the home goal safe with 
great assistance from Steph 
Burke, the team goalie, the 
season was a great success. 



Mid fielders Amy and her 
sister Alison used that 
'Spear' power to do a fan- 
tastic job in both offense 
and defense. When asked 
what the team thought 
about the future of Min- 
nechaug Field Hockey, they 
said they were anxiously 
awaiting next year. With a 
young team that holds great 
depth, they are sure to have 
a successful future. Good 
luck, girls!

The scoreboards you see

successful season. Both the 
boys 'and girls'Cross Coun- 
try teams had the depth of 
talent, worked hard, and 
displayed the effort to 
win.Minnechaug outdis- 
tanced the field at every 
chance they were given. 
What led to their success 
was a mixture of finely 
tuned veterans,high quality 
new comers and of course 



the constant hard work and 
grueling hours that keep 
Minnechaug on the top. Al- 
though the seniors will be 
missed next season, the tal- 
ented young runners re- 
maining on both cross coun- 
try teams show infinite 
potential and we are sure 
they will continue the fine 
tradition of success that has 
existed at Minnechaug for 
many winning years.

Gymnastics 

Solid Performance 



When it comes to talent, 
this year's gymnastics team 
was one of the deepest ever. 
Every gymnast set a very 
high standard for themself 
and wouldn't give up, even 
under pressure. Our biggest 
competition was Spring- 
field's Central High School. 
The scores were always 
neck and neck, coming as 
close as 115.0 to 114.95. 
Minnechaug was 16-1, los- 
ing one tough and disap- 



pointing meet to Lenox. 
When the time came for 
W.Mass we were seated 1st. 
The whole team was con- 
fident that they could keep 
the title. But the night ended 
with Minnechaug 2nd 
(128.7) and Central 1st 
(129.5). We were both dis- 
appointed and proud. We 
worked very hard and 
ended with a good overall 
record.

Solid Effort 



While our record was less 
impressive than we had 
hoped, the Falcons man- 
aged to field a competative 
team and pulled off several 
impressive victories. The 
team was led by senior co- 
captains Walter Grono and 
Andy Henshon, who com- 
bined to average nearly 
thirty points and fifteen re- 
bounds per game. Both of 
these players finished with- 
in the top four in scoring in 
the Valley Wheel, and will 
be missed next year. The 
sophomore trio of Alex Ler- 
itz, Mike Nordstrom, and 
Mike Disa emerged in their 



first year on varsity and 
eventually earned spots in 
the starting line up. Jay- 
Saun Beamon was the 
teams most agressive play- 
er and provided numerous 
crowd-pleasing plays. In 
addition to the team, "the 
ice box" will also lose val- 
uable members to gradua- 
tion, among them Josh 
Kantor,Chris Tarantinojim 
McGrath,Roy Legere.Eric 
Brunelle,Ben Muldrew,and 
Mike Roberts. Hopefully, the 
class of 94 will step up and 
fill the void left in Min- 
nechaug basketball.

Solid Comeback 



In only his second year 
leading the Varsity girls at 
Minnechaug Coach David 
Yelle really rejuvenated the 
program and at yearbook 
press time we found the 
Varsity undefeated with a 
19-0 record and 4th seed in 
the Division 1 Western Mass 
Tournament. For the second 
year Megan Burke led the 
team scoring statistics with 
15 points per game, but 
these victories were truly a 
team efforts with an incred- 



ibly balanced scoring at- 
tack. In many games, 
everyone scored. 

Third year JV coach Bill 
Griffith lead a good team 
that will definitely keep the 
Varsity program supplied 
with some quality athletes in 
the future. 

All this depth of talent and 
this string of victories cer- 
tainly has established Min- 
nechaug as a girls basket- 
ball powerhouse.

"Rocky Mountain High 



For the first month of ski 
practice, we don't touch 
snow. We have grueling dry 
land pratice consisting of 
stairs, wall sits, leg-lifts, 
crunches, etc. After Christ- 
mas break we start the 
mountain pratices. The first 
meet was January 8, where 
the girls skiing slalom 
placed 3rd and the guys 
racing giant slalom came in 
2nd. All sights were set on 
States, where the top two 
teams in each division com- 



pete against the best teams 
in the eastern part of the 
state. The two teams faught 
hard to qualify for states 
even though we faced a 
major set back when we 
were unable to make the 
second meet due to closed 
after school activities. Even 
though neither team made 
it, Minnechaug will be well 
represented by individual 
qualifiers, Jeff O'Connor, 
Doug Paige, Laura Bresette 
and Michelle Desrosier.

Rock the Pool 



Team captains Catherine Duffy and Eric 
Brunelle agree that the M.R.H.S. Boys' and 
Girls' Swim Teams had another excellent sea- 
son capped by Western Mass. Championships 
for both groups. The girls finished out the reg- 
ular season with an 11-0 record and the boys 
went 10-0-1, after tying once with 
Longmeadow who had been picked by the 
Union News as the favorite to win. This was 
the girls' third W.Mass Championship in three 



years and the boys' second in three years. All 
six senior girls performed well and went on to 
compete in W. Mass with Amy Mikuszewski 
winning the 200 and 500 freestyle, breaking 
the W. Mass record in both events. Senior boys 
also did well with Andrew Smith placing sec- 
ond and Sean Overton fourth in diving. Bryan 
McFarland won both the 200 and 500 freestyle 
to push the boys into the championship.

Solid Goals 



With last year's 6-11-1 
record behind them, many 
changes were apparent as 
this hockey season began. It 
was clear that hard work 
and determination could 
pay off with a successful 
season, because clearly' 
under the direction of 
Coach Mike Ellis, all the 
right ingredients were there. 
The season started some- 
what slowly with a couple of 
losses and we were serious- 
ly plagued by injuries in- 



cluding Senior Captain 
Chris Wright. Chris had 
headed up the defense but 
luckily Chip Perkins, Seth 
Crocker, Steve Mikolajczuk, 
and Dan Campbell filled the 
void. Big wins over strong 
teams like Pittsfield and St. 
Joes led to a final record of 
10-9 in the Berry Division. 
All the players put in their 
best effort to go over .500 for 
the season.

Mr. Gary Petzold 



Activities Director 

As a class of '68 graduate, I firmly believe that my 
successes in life are due in part to my "Rock Solid" ed- 
ucation in the classrooms and athletic and activity pro- 
grams at Minnechaug. Our school has offered exceptional 
educational experiences to students for thirty three years 
as a result of our dedicated educators. Today's students 
continue the Chaug traditions and the high level of 
achievement of past classes while helping to develop new 
programs throughout the school and community, Students 
now serve on a variety of faculty committees, meet reg- 
ularly with the principal, and have a voice on the school 
committee. They are the members of a greater variety of 
activity, sport, and community programs which produces a 
broad base of participants with a "Rock Solid" educational 
foundation. As such, Minnechaug remains highly respected 
by all who are touched by its programs. 

Members of the Class of '93 are our talented student 
activity leaders. They have displayed energy, spirit, and 
creativity in planning numerous new activity events. The 
blend of good friends and solid effort has united the class 
into a group with common roots. I hope each member of the 
class will work to insure that future generations can also 
receive an excellent education. I am proud to have worked 
closely with the class, commend them for their many ac- 
complishments, and wish them all the best in their future 
activities.

Director — Ms. Magaret Reidy 

With approximately 60 to 70 members in two per- 
formance groups, and some 20 new members every 
year, that gives us nearly 140 new musicians every 4 
years. . . nearly 300 every 8 years. 

So one talented member takes charge of the "vision" 
and continuity, not to mentions the thousands of hours of 
practice in that same time. 

Our "hats off" to that one constant talent, Ms. Margaret 
Reidy.

Foolishness Strikes 





Againi 



Blame it on fatigue. . . Blame it on brain stem 
burnout. . . blame it on too many repetitive tasks. . . 
or blame it simply on a very poor collective sense of 
humor! After viewing the 1000 student and faculty 
portraits we will publish, and the 400 or so retakes, 
doubles, and proofs we will examine we have suf- 
fered a core meltdown! There can be no other 
explanation for what we have done here. With all 
these photos in front of us we started to wonder. . . 
"What would he look like with his grin?". . ."Would 
she look better with her hairstyle?". . . So with a 
snip, snip, here, and a snip and tape there. . . 




We express our sincere apology to any person we 
have here offended by the use of any part of their 
likeness, however small that part may be and how- 
ever good our intentions might have been . . . NOTl

DRUG ABUSE RESISTANCE EDUCATION 



January 25th, 1993 marked the graduation of 
our first class of D.A.R.E. students. The D.A.R.E. 
(Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program at 
Minnechaug (one of only 2 such high school 
programs in the state) is a cooperative effort 
between M.R.H.S. and the Hampden Police De- 
partment. Truly, D.A.R.E. at M.R.H.S. is Officer 
Jeff Snow and P.E. teacher Pat Polchlopek, who 
explained to those who filled the auditorium for 
that monday evening graduation, that D.A.R.E. 
was about "making good choices", and the 
"consequences of making bad choices". Officer 
Snow reminded the parents that "D.A.R.E. isn't 
magic. There's no such thing as fairy dust". He 
told them to "talk with your kids, not to them". 

Mrs. Polchlopek and Officer Snow talked with 
us_about drugs, alcohol, and violence this year, 
and we thank them for that.

Totally Strange 

and 
Hidden Places 

Four days, forty days, four hundred, or four thou- 
sand days. . . It's possible to walk every day from 
C-Hall to M-Hall and never really know this build- 
ing. We figure the average student may get to see 
about one third of this rambling facility in their four 
years. 

So the roving Yearbook photographers did some 
snooping around for you. We found two darkrooms, 
rooms with printing presses and rooms with huge 
metal cutting machines, rooms with escape hatches 
to the roof, caged-in rooms with shelf after shelf of 
exotic dusty bottles of chemicals, a television studio, 
equipment repair workshops, and even enormous 
rooms full of electrical equipment and plumbing 
JbeJow the pool and above the auditorium. 

So take a tour with us. . .

A 

Body Art 



It seems to be mainly a matter of alcohol, piercing guns, cat gut, 
starter studs, high-powered electric needles, india ink, ether, and 
blood. . . always the blood! 

But not even this bizarre collection of hideous tools and strange 
chemicals, or any amount of pain and risk of infection, seem to stop 
the truly determined "collector of body art". 

All this is relative of course when we live on a planet where we 
can find people who: tightly bind their bodies to permanently alter 
their shapes; decoratively scar their faces with razors; wrap them- 
selves with row after row of copper rings to stretch their necks; or 
insert long sharp nails through their cheeks. 

One person's mutilation is truly another person's beautification. 
Who are we to judge?

"Our 
Colleen" 

M.R.H.S. senior Judy Maleckas 
was a finalist in this year's Colleen 
Contest. Twenty-two years ago, 
Judy's aunt, Eileen Goodrow, was 
selected for the Colleen's court, and 
now it's Judy's turn. The Colleens 
are competing with many area girls 
of Irish heritage for the honor of 
being the queen of Springfield's St. 
Patrick's Day Parade. Judy's last 
name is Lithuanian, but her mother 
was born in Ireland and Judy has 
visited Ireland and as anyone who 
was at last year's P.A.V.A.S. show 
in the courtyard knows, she is an 
accomplished Irish step dancer. At 
a January ceremony, the semi- 
finalists, dressed in satin evening 
gowns, took over the yearlong ob- 
ligation and privilege from the out- 
going court. Judging was based, in 
part, on a 250-word essay about 
Irish heritage. 





Make A 
Wish 

The Minnechaug, Varsity Cheer- 
leaders helped the "Make-A-Wish" 
foundation last July. They cheered for 
the ABC soap stars as they played 
the Channel 40 News Team in a 
charity Softball game. The game was 
played at Szot Park in Chicopee, and 
the soap stars were victorious. A 
good time was had by all and much 
needed money was raised.

Son — recollections of humid sum- 
mers in shorts and fur boots. Friend- 
ly child, grape seeds, Belltinker, 
Benjey, missing bike, candy apples 
and a plastic train. 
The bus, "don't go into the house 
and cry, I'll be right back". 
Broken dream, physical therapy, 
development of character and a 
crown. Thank you for the pleasure 
of you. Our best to you and the 
Class of 1993. 
Love, M x 4 + M

More pictures, more pictures, more. . . This year we chal- 
lenged ourselves to give you more, better, pictures. We think 
we did! And. . . we are very proud of the work we did raising 
money for, and custom designing the cover. 

Looking forward, we are already working toward the 1994 
FALCON. Our new, added goals? More, better, graphics and 
more tight photo-filled layouts. At press time we found our- 
selves counting our pennies to see if we can publish a second 
annual spring supplement, so keep your eyes peeled for more 
to come. . .
